Candidates

SHORTLIST carries out several robust checks to ensure that the Employers featured on the Site are real companies looking for talent. By conducting many random spot checks across our database, we as much as possible ensure that the Employers are legitimate and can be contacted.

Despite the above, SHORTLIST is still in no position to guarantee the genuineness, legitimacy, existence or legality of any of the Employers on the Site.

We count on you to be vigilant for fraudsters and time wasters, and to REPORT TO US as soon as you notice any suspicious activities or requests from any Employer. This should be done swiftly in order to prevent you or other fellow candidates from being swindled.
